My expertise is deeply rooted in the world of wine. I have never found a premium adult alcohol-free drink whose taste, like fine wine, can enhance all manner of fine dining while retaining low calories and sugar. So I spent two years crafting my organic apple cider vinegar-based Jukes drinks for this growing market sector. They have been well received: with over 15k e-commerce orders and 50+ fine dining listings as they re-open.
Made in London, we sell Jukes in two white, one rosé and two red versions (in several formats) to discerning customers who value their flavour, food-pairing skills and aesthetic. They feature in retail outlets (e.g. Fortnum & Mason) and a wide range of top-end hospitality venues (inc. two Michelin restaurants). Planning to widen our portfolio next year when we aim to launch a broader-market Jukes drink in a can.
We sell via e-commerce and to the trade directly (UK, US) and through distribution partners (EU, Asia) and agents (MidEast). Our sales include over 100 trade outlets and over 15,000 e-commerce orders.
We grow customer awareness through social media, paid print media (Vogue, GQ), expert reviews (FT, Food & Wine) and myself as our founder. These funds will help drive further growth by expanding our sales platforms and brand marketing, especially UK and US. Join us on our journey!
